Before And After Sugar Waxing Tips

After understanding how to make sugar wax you must have knowledge about pre and post-waxing routine. This routine will help your skin free of ingrown hairs. Here, I’ve given a few tips for your skin before and after sugar waxing.

Pre-Waxing Tips

  • Make sure your hair is about ¼ inch long before waxing. Hairs shorter than this size won’t be removed from the hair shaft easily. 
  • Always gently exfoliate the skin using a loofah, sugar scrub, or bath min before sugaring. This will help you to remove flaky skin and won’t cause any skin irritation.
  • Excessive sweating can open skin pores, so make sure you don’t do anything that can cause excessive sweating. For example, avoid visiting the sauna, working out, taking a hot yoga class, or soaking in the tub.
  • Drinking alcohol and caffeine can make your skin more prone to bleeding. Also, avoid the use of any retinoid-based cream on your skin for at least 24 to 48 hours before waxing.
  • Stay out of the sun for at least 48 hours or at least cover any areas you plan to wax.
  • Don’t apply deodorant, makeup, lotion, perfume, or any other body products on the day of waxing. This will increase the risk of skin irritation and infection.

Post-Waxing Tips

  • After you finish your waxing session, wear loose-fitting clothes.
  • Make sure you avoid using all bath and body products such as lotions, makeup, deodorant, and creams for 48 hours.
  • After 48 hours, apply moisture to soothe skin.
  • You can even gently exfoliate your skin to keep it smooth and free of ingrown hairs.
  • Also, avoid spending time in the sun or do anything that may cause excessive sweating.
  • Try not to touch or scratch on recently waxed skin.
